"The most recent accounts show that the ECB has shed almost 90 per cent of its cash reserves in the space of two years...Despite signing a record broadcasting deal last summer to include the new tournament, counties have been told that there will be no extra prize money for the County Championship or T20 Blast, nor any extra funds to market it. The salary cap will not be raised. The ECB’s own internal departments have been ordered to slash costs by around 10 per cent. The elite pace and spin bowling camps have been scrapped. So too the overseas placement scheme, which sent the likes of Joe Root and Ollie Pope to hone their craft in Australian grade cricket. So too the North v South series. What was billed as English cricket’s great age of enrichment has turned into its age of austerity."

This all beggars belief. Why have a few people been given the power to do this?
